An extensive collection of art, books, and sculpture that spans multiple centuries and mediums, the Palau March Museum is a cultural highlight of Palma. Of particular note are its courtyards of exquisite sculpture and statues from the likes of Rodin, Moore, Cardenas, and Chillida, the massive Book Hall with rare manuscripts, and the unique collection of nautical charts from the 15th-17th centuries. There are other rare finds here, such as an extensive Nativity crib exhibit and other painted wooden sculptures (many of them religious in nature.)
The museum’s exterior is worth a visit alone, with influences from Baroque palaces. It was once the residence of the richest man in Mallorca. A variety of shapes, textures, and colors on display in the outdoor gallery is a sight to behold. The courtyard is quite scenic, with a highly decorate facade and a great view of Palma.
The museum can be found in the center of historic Palma, just beside the cathedral. Hours can vary seasonally, but it’s generally open every day outside of Sunday.
